“Making art is my anchor. The process of creating grounds me and keeps me in the moment. There is no past and no future in my studio; there is just now, which is where I belong and where I do my best work.”
“Like most other people, I have experienced many detours in my life journey, some big and some small. When I came to Florida's beautiful west coast, my work changed. It became brighter, more colorful, lighter, and looser. I experimented with new materials, colors, and subject matter. I began adding collage materials and found objects. I started using watercolors and inks along with acrylics. I rediscovered oil paint in a new way by mixing the oils with cold wax to add depth and texture. My work became more abstract and symbolic."
"I have been designing, illustrating, painting and writing most of my life. There are fragments of my thoughts, observations, fears, hopes, and dreams in each piece of my art. My work is an expression of my travels along life's path; one that is frequently a challenging journey of love. Being able to share my work with people from all over the country and the world brings me immense joy. I am so lucky to wake up each morning and spend my day doing what I love!"
